that maybe one of the things that creates a sense of peacefulness in the social environment is that we have so many different religions and a first amendment that protects religious freedom that we don't have one religion rising to the surface or competing or two or three. well, one thing we wanted to do with our new version of beliefs and believers is to go to a part of the world where we do see more of the tensions between religion, and the spot we picked on, dare i say, was israel and then to some extent egypt. and we wanted to go to israel in particular because there isn't such a diverse cultural environment in terms of religion, so that the tensions are, in some senses, watered down. as we all know, unless you've been meditating in a cave for the past 20 years, israel and the social environment in israel is very tense in terms of the relationship between the three great faiths that actually share something of a cultural tradition- judaism, christianity, and islam. and so what we- we have an extraordinary opportunity, and something like a great risk. i'm surprised david ainsworth, our e

a political point. i think i was trying to describe the environment that i found myself in. i am a pastor first and foremost. i'm not a politician. i am descriptive rather than prescriptive. so what i was describing was phenomena that i saw on both side of the aisle. i think, for instance, i made a statement, remove the burdens of those who are the collateral damage of this federal shutdown. most of my members were furloughed. i'm aware of the burden that is they have to bear. i made a plea for their not to be a delay in death benefits to the grieving families of our fallen warriors. i did that primarily because i have made scores of death notifications to next of kin as a navy chap plain for 27 years and i appreciate the incomprehensible nature of their grief. so i was praying out of pastoral concern rather than trying to make a political point. >> do you feel as though you were giveing a voice some somes those people who were furloughed or for military families then? >> i think a critical part of prayer is to lift to god the concerns and the need of the people you serve. so you are a vo

. american workers have had to adapt to keep pace with this changing environment. so should our laws. instead of sticking with an antiquated labor law, i believe we need to update the fair labor standards act to actually meet the changing needs of workers. that's why i'm introducing the family friendly and workplace flexibility act. this bill will allow flexible workplace arrangements such as compensatory time and flexible credit-hour agreements which are currently available to employees working for the federal government. federal employees already have this. allow that to be extended to businesses regulated by the fair labor standards act. currently the flsa prohibits employers from offering compensatory time or comptime to their hourly employees. this bill would amend the flsa to allow private employers to offer kofrpl -- comptime to employees at a rate of a hour to every half-hour of work. an employee can monetary payment. this gives the option to include paid time off over work instead. there is no need for washington to stand in the way of families earning the time that they need. this b

and environment coalition, i rise today to recognize the one-year anniversary of superstorm sandy and remember those who tragically lost their lives, as well as those continuing to rebuild from that destruction. in the years since superstorm sandy ravaged the east coast, communities across the nation have suffered through new extreme droughts, storms, wildfires, and flooding. my home state of hawaii is incredibly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. as you can imagine a sea level rise is a real threat and concern for us. earlier this year honolulu joined more than 70 other u.s. communities asking for the president to cut greenhouse gas emissions that are driving climate change and increasing hawaii's risk of extreme weather events and sea level rise. when i was in the hawaii legislature, i'm proud to say we passed a bill, and we were one of the first states to address the greenhouse gas emissions. as we reflect on this somber anniversary, i remain committed to ensure people of hawaii have the resources to prepare, respond, and recover from devastation. we must all remember it is climat

in no way allows them back into the banking environment and it in no way permits a bailout of banks because of derivatives. it makes sense to spend, even though we've spent a lot of time on this today, to spend time on the rest oy of this -- history of the bill. then-ranking member barney frank takes a suggestion from then-representative nan hayworth to repeal section 716. the then-ranking member says let's not repeal it. let's allow for the plain vanilla common derivatives to remain in the banks and push out the dangerous ones. the democratic staff helps draft this. i'm personally asked to offer this amendment to nan haworth's bill. she accepts it. a voice vote is passed, the bill is passed in the last congress. the minority supports it, well all forth it -- support it this year the same thing comes before us, we've beginned up the press, ginned up the press, ginned up the bloggers, what is different? what passed in bipartisan fashion last congress real toiv this congress. he london whale? j.p. morgan was hedging. that's allowed. what has changed is that we no longer do the hard work of fi
states for those who carry firearms. ultimately, this effort fosters a wild west environment in our communities where individuals play the role of judge, jury and executioner. in my home state of ohio, house bill 203 would with expand the concealed-carry law to permit the use of lethal force wherever an individual is legally permitted to be while removing the tooth to retreat. the duty to retreat. this change to current law would bring ohio in line with other stand your ground states. proponents of stand your ground laws often allege that these laws deter crime. however, the opposite is true. according to a study by the university of texas a&m, states with stand your ground laws have seep an 8% increase in homicides. the enforcement of stand your ground laws too often rely on the decisions of those with cultural biases on whether a person's life is in danger. not surprisingly, these decisions have had a disparate impact on african-americans. the urban institute's justice policy center found that in stand your ground states 35.9% of shootings involving a black shooter are justified.
some daunting challenges, that we are working in a very complicated environment to craft a very technical bill that touches so many important parts of our society, of our economy and of this country as a whole, and i know that there are many different perspectives on social policy, on agricultural production policy, but i'm confident that the spirit that's been demonstrated in achieving this point, passage of both the bills out of the house and senate committees and across the floor, that we can accomplish that. and i would be most remiss if i didn't note the special appreciation i have for my ranking member and my friend, i believe, collin peterson, as well as all of my friends at this table, and most assuredly those on the other side of the table. i take this responsibility that we have together to accomplish this very important goal very seriously. i live in the part of the country where between mother nature and federal policy, on two -- almost three occasions in this last century, my folks saw their way of life nearly completely destroyed. i know that we cannot persuade mot
hygiene really is this idea of making our living environment conducive to us sleeping the best we can. couple things to keep in mind. i mentioned the importance of going to bed at the same time and waking up at the same time, that's important so keep that schedule. other things we can do at home, make sure we're avoiding caffeine and large meals right before bedtime. that really disrupts our sleep patterns. there's a couple of other things also. exercise as a physician i always want my patients to exercise but not before bedtime because this could keep you awake as well. make sure that your bedroom is conducive to sleeping, that the temperature is not too warm, nice and cool,' temperate and also make sure we're turning off the phones, turning off the television and the computers, because we really want to get our mind geared up and ready to rest. >> no tweeting before bed? okay, so says the doctor. we want to turn to another topic on a slightly different note a report out of brooklyn, eight sixth graders were hospitalized, two sent to the doctor after axe body spray was sprayed in a c
